Unfortunately, all that eyecandy renders very poorly on low-spec
graphic cards. There is a good reason why the current Metacity theme
we have is very spartan: it renders well in a variety of situations,
including on laptops with a small color palette.

The one good thing that came out of this thread, though, and that
should be further developped, is the two-color black/yellow striped
Metacity theme for sudo'ed actions.
